My name is Judy I retired this February. I was flip flopping back & forth with my weight for too long. In Jan. of this year I started to be a MINDFUL eater. When I go out to a restaurant ( which is not too often ) I go on line to read there menu & pick out from home what I want. That way I already know what I will have as if I did not I would be prone perhaps to order unhealthy. If I go to a buffet before even picking up the plate I walk the buffet twice then I pick out my grilled meat chicken & fish or if not grilled will get chicken take the skin off & breading so I have some protein. then the rest of my plate is filled with all kinds of vegetables, plus a ;large salad with no dressing on it as I would not be able to taste the vegetable in it's crispy form. I use to smother my salad with dressing, then there is a;ways plenty of fruit . I always order water no sugared drinks !!! I am also & still can not believe my attitude change on working out. I walk 2 to 4 miles a day, swim 3 times a week for an hour straight, then Zumba twice a week. I almost lost my hand due to an accident. So I have changed in my thinking so much about life. I try to be a MINDFUL eater & MINDFUL in my exercise !!!

    You will probably need to unpack each item one at a time. A slow process but it will get done!

    Only you can make the change. But you can also hire help. I don't know your financial situation but there are people that are professional organizers that have assistants that charge not nearly as much as an organizer per se, and would get the job done so quickly. I decorate and organize for a living and do hire people to help me. I also give them jobs when my clients don't want to pay for my hourly fee. They would much rather pay less. Also college students, high school students during the summer would love to find part time jobs. Hire them and they could help out. Just some suggestions to get you started. Remember, a clutter home is a clutter mind. Your home should always be a reflection of your spirit Judy. I am here 24/7! ;o)
